Andrew,
You might try dry mounting tissue.
Whatever you do, let us know how it works.

Andrew,
The double stick stuff that Barbara mentioned is excellent. I can
only add that you want to use it on dry paper. Also, the rule is dry
to dry, wet to wet and never the twain shall meet. Or something like
that - you get the gist.

I remember we used to dry mount photos (back in our dark room days), but it
required heat and pressure. Don't know what that would do to a print.

We are arranging visits to the San Antonio Museum of Art and the McNay,

Subject: John Alexander & Thomas Roberts Reprint
Posted by: Annie B

As promised, I'll show you the print of John Alexander & Thomas Roberts that I finished and hated:

JAlexanderTRobertsRejectPrint

It's been nearly 2 months since I added the final black layer and a lot has happened in between -- mostly moving to a new house and studio. I thought that maybe I'd come back to this print after these few weeks and see it differently, but I still don't like it. I don't like the colors (too red white and blue) and I also don't like the black lettering that says "God said: Death to the Faggits (sic)".

That lettering is taken directly from a letter that was sent to the Episcopal Church Diocese of New Hampshire in 2003 when openly gay priest Gene Robinson was elected bishop. I have to admit that carving the lettering was very therapeutic. There's so much emotion in the way the text was written. It was written with what was apparently a ballpoint pen, the lines thickened by scribbling the same lines over and over again. My hands literally shook as I carved -- I could feel the anger and hatred in the letterforms as I carved this person's handwriting and it was frightening to recreate it.

RealHandwriting

I'm glad I did that carving. There was something powerful for me in facing this person's hatred and letting my own hands recreate it. I felt like I was defusing a bomb. But I don't like how it looks. It's too much. It doesn't need to be there in this print.

So out it will come. I have 16 new sheets of nishinouchi ready to go and I'm going to print these blocks all over again. But first, I have a wedding to go to -- my nephew Chris! See you next week...
